The guns are not fired per Boat,but as part of the Flotilla overall gunnery on the action pad (above the victory point score).
their more to indicate the number of heavier calibre guns on the boats.

But as the boats take damage the gun hits are crossed off on the flotilla score (think of it as various combined shooting as the flotilla sails down the harbour,as ships are hit/sunk the effect is less and less)
No boat targets individually the german shore batteries etc,
rather as a whole over (continuous fire from all boats) over a three min' turn.

cheerio

So strictly speaking the number on the counter is useless...right?

It reflects the starting gunnery capacity of each ship and is a mirror of the same number on the game log. It is useless in the sense that you do not need it for playing.

The more guns you got left, the better change you got to hit something.
